In honor of Black History Month, we're excited to share this new product that showcases rich history and culture of Africa, and is also symbolic of the incredible journey of Black people in the United States. 

During the Black Lives Matter movement in July last year, we got a lot of requests to design a bag with our handwoven Aso-oke fabrics made by artisans in the motherland but representing the colors of the BLM movement. One of them read:

  • As descendants of enslaved Africans here in the US, we have been in the struggle for 450+ years. The colors of the banner symbolic of our struggle are red, black and green. I personally would purchase a bag with our banner colors and I believe many others from here would as well. It would mean even more coming from skilled craftsmen on the continent that many of us have not seen but hold close to our hearts - because it is in our DNA. Please consider creating such a bag to connect with and honor the legacy, courage, and resilience of the sisters here. 

 The Maya tote is made entirely with hand-crafted aso-oke from Nigeria, and it is perfect for errands and days when you're on the go. It has a spacious compartment and an internal pocket to keep small items separate. You can hold it by the two top handles, or style it crossbody with the detachable strap when you need to go hands-free.

$10 from every bag sold will go towards supporting Color of Change, a black non-profit organization that works to build power for black communities and advance solutions for racial justice.

          Made with Aso-Oke and finished with gold accessories.
